In an effort to provide continuous quality improvement and to better serve participants, DHS is reviewing the current structure of its home modifications service as provided through the Consolidated, P/FDS, Autism, Aging, COMMCARE, Independence, and OBRA Waivers. DHS seeks to increase accountability and predictability; create consistency across the waivers; and identify options for quality improvement strategies and process improvement.
On June 3, 2015, DHS issued the Home Modification Quality Improvement Program Discussion Document to solicit feedback on the proposed Regional Broker Model for the home modification waiver service. DHS received over 250 comments, recommendations and questions from over 50 organizations including counties, Area Agencies on Aging, Centers for Independent Living, Service Coordination Entities, individuals and families, advocates and providers.
Please find the attached response to those comments. If you have any comments, please email RA-PWPROGRAMREVIEW@pa.gov by August 28, 2015.
